Dabo Swinney was hand Sunday to see four of his former players in action when the Buffalo Bills played host to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

C.J. Spiller figured prominently in a concerted, game-long rushing effort by the Bills, who pounded the Jaguars 34-18 and kept their playoff hopes alive.

Spiller carried 14 times for 77 yards, including a 44-yard touchdown run. He also caught one pass for seven yards.

Backfield running mate Fred Jackson played the workhorse roll for the Bills, as he carried 25 times for 109 yards.

Andre Branch made one tackle for the Jaguars, Crezdon Butler had one solo tackle for the Bills, and Chris Hairston started at right tackle for the Bills.

Also with a big play on Sunday was Dwayne Allen, who had a 40-yard reception in the Indianapolis Colts' 35-33 come-from-behind win over the Detroit Lions. Overall, Allen had two receptions for 50 yards.

Kavell Conner aided the Colts' cause with five tackles and a PBU.

Chris Clemons had seven tackles, including six solo, in Miami's 23-16 loss to New England.

Da'Quan Bowers had three tackles, including a tackle for loss, and a PBU bat-down for Tampa Bay in the Bucs' 31-23 loss to Denver.

Marcus Gilchrist had eight tackles, including seven solo, and a quarterback-hit in San Diego's 20-13 loss to Cincinnati.

Mike Bellamy is on line two. He has been holding for a long time. He wants to talk about more playing time.

I wish he could have gotten his act together. Would have been nice to have him now darting up the middle like he did at Va.Tech last year. Except this year have him with a little more strength and weight on him and all that blazing SPEEEEEED!!!!! HA HA!
